    @Vijayasri Parthasarathy The South Indian Navratri tradition of displaying dolls (bommai golu) arranged on an odd number of steps, includes inviting guests home to sing together, share bowls of piping hotsundaland gogoluhopping. This year is different.

    We need to be cautious. We will limit the number of invitees and keep hand sanitisers at the entrance of our home .
